The Information Officer at Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers of Nepal, Chiranjibi Poudel, has announced that the Cabinet of the Government of Nepal had decided not to go along with the proposal of the Nepalese Home Minister, Bamdev Gautam, who had suggested, yesterday, to extend the upcoming Dashain Nepalese public holidays, into a 15-day period of non-working public holidays throughout Nepal.

Yesterday morning (09-Oct-2015), a spokesperson for the Home Ministry of the Government of Nepal, Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, had announced the Nepalese Home Ministry was tabling a proposal to extend the upcoming Dashain, 5-day, Nepalese public holidays, into a 15-day period of non-working public holidays throughout Nepal, "in view of the ongoing fuel crisis in the country due to the Indian restriction on importing fuel".

This period of non-working public holidays throughout Nepal, would have been in addition to the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2072 (mid-April 2015 to mid-April 2016), announced, earlier this spring (03-Mar-2015), and due to final exams on October 11, would in all likelihood have run from the date of the upcoming Ghatasthapana annual Nepalese public holiday, until the date of the upcoming Kojagrat Purnima annual Nepalese public holiday.
